A Pottsville man convinced a 15-year-old girl he was part werewolf and part vampire before sexually assaulting her, police say.
Kristian Allen Carl, 19, also believed he was a supernatural mixed breed, police say.
"He convinced himself he was a hybrid -- a combination werewolf and vampire," Pottsville police Sgt. James Joos said. "He had convinced the girl he was, too."
To prove to police he was indeed a genuine vampire/werewolf, Carl "showed me his canine teeth," Joos said. "I let him know that all mammals, including humans, have canine teeth."
Joos said Carl also told police he had a "guardian dragon that protected him from evildoers."
Carl was charged with statutory sexual assault after admitting he had sexual intercourse with the girl, who told police he was her boyfriend, on Nov. 14, 2007, according to an affidavit Joos filed with District Judge Charles Moran of Pottsville.
Carl knew the girl's age and was aware he could "get in trouble" for having sex with a girl under age 16, Joos wrote. Carl told police he had met the girl the previous night and the two went to a friend's apartment to spend the night.
Moran on Jan. 29 found sufficient evidence to order Carl to face Schuylkill County Court on the charges. Carl remains free on $25,000 unsecured bail, Joos said.
"He's being held culpable for his actions," Joos said.
